LOS ANGELES — Former Occidental quarterback Bryan Scott '17 has been invited to the Los Angeles Rams Rookie Camp this weekend.
The 2016 SCIAC Offensive Player of the Year will participate in team activities and drills from Friday to Monday.
Scott, who has drawn interest from everyone from NFL, CFL and AFL teams, got the call late on Wednesday night.
"It's a great and exciting time for my family and me," said Scott, who will graduate in less than two weeks with a degree in economics. "Getting that call was one of the best moments of my life. I'm proud and honored to be a Ram and very thankful to their organization."
During his career as a Tiger, Scott led one of the best NCAA Division III offenses in the country and broke most Oxy and SCIAC passing records, including becoming the SCIAC's all-time leader in passing yardage.
Scott, who's from Rolling Hills, threw for a total of 9,073 yards as a four-year starter, led the SCIAC in passing yards per game (339.8) and touchdowns (27), was second in completion percentage (66.4), and third in rushing touchdowns (8) in 2016. He also became Oxy's single season passing yards leader (3,058) during 2016 and his 339.8 passing yards per game ranked in the top 10 in the country for NCAA Division III.
Scott has been making a headlines this spring ever since he began getting serious about playing football at the next level. In April, Oxy alumnus and legendary LA Times columnist Sam Farmer '88 wrote about Occidental's Scott Getting His Shot at the Big Time after an impressive day at the University of Southern California's pro day.
"I've had a special and blessed journey starting when I was 5-years-old and to get invited to an NFL camp is a dream come true," Scott said. "Also a huge than you to Oxy and the Foxhole for getting me to this point."Follow Oxy Athletics on Twitter Sign Up for Newsletters Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
